Words Used at the National Conventions



Republicans and Democrats have just concluded their National Conventions. Political junkies like me  watched or listened to both conventions, and were bombarded by words and phrases, claims and counter claims.

What does it all mean?

Enter an interactive feature brought by NYTimes.com which shows the most common words used along with the proportion by Democrats (in blue) and Republicans (in red).

What do you make of this bit of analysis? It is interactive--try adding your own words and watch the result!

I find it fascinating! Have a look, then come back and discuss in the comments. Women, Church, Leadership, Hope, Military, Jobs, Trust: do you see any surprises?
